Because I want to be able to manipulate the design for whatever I need it for, I re-drew it in Touchdraw using the best cursive font I have there which is the Fling font (the Fat Quarterly font).
I decided I wanted piecing lines within the stars and white seemed to look the cleanest. Once I'd added those, I lightened the centre of the stars for a bit of contrast.
A bit of playing around with another font (inspired by the way Lee mixes cursive fonts with those kind of simple rounded fonts) and colours to match the stars and I had the Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet button designs.
